Présentation de l'éditeur

Inspired by Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, A Fair Prospect is a tale of Darcy and Elizabeth.

(Please note: this is one story told across three volumes and there is, therefore, no conclusion to the storylines in the first two volumes. This story is rated PG)

In Disappointed Hopes (Vol I), Fitzwilliam Darcy returns to London a devastated and humbled man following his rejection by Elizabeth Bennet. The lady, meanwhile, is battling the unprecedented feelings stirred by having endured an innocent but intimate encounter with the gentleman in the aftermath of his proposal.

Soon on her way to Town herself for an unanticipated stay, she is comforted by the presence of an old family friend, one Nicholas Harington – the son of a wealthy family whose position in society rivals that of the Darcys of Pemberley.

Circumstance soon throws Darcy back into the company of Elizabeth, much to their mutual consternation, and also introduces him to Harington who has emerged as a potential suitor for Elizabeth’s hand, a union that is viewed as a fair prospect by all – except, perhaps, Darcy himself.

Biographie de l'auteur

A fan of Jane Austen since having to study Pride & Prejudice for her English Literature O Level in 1978, Cassandra Grafton has been indulging her passion for all things Austen for many years. Having long wanted to be a writer, the two came together in recent years, and she is now publishing her endeavours in the hope that people will enjoy reading her stories with as much pleasure as she had in writing them.

A former college lecturer (and now a PA), Cassandra is British born and bred (though she did live in the USA for five years). She has two grown up children and splits her time between Rafz in Switzerland, where she lives with her husband and imaginary cat, and Regency England, where she lives with her characters.

j 'ai dévoré les 3 livres et ils m ont amusée sans trop s éloigner de l original
ils sont aussi suffisamment légers pour être vite oubliés et relus un peu plus tard avec le même plaisir
il y a de la modestie dans ce travail qui ne vise que le plaisir simple d une revisite sans prétention

HASH(0xa22fb75c) étoiles sur 5 No disappointed hopes here! 15 mars 2013

I am almost embarrassed to admit to how much Jane Austen-based fiction I have read over the past decade or longer. Suffice it to say, it has run the gamut from delightful to dreadful. Some stories were forgotten as soon as they were completed, and many others have blurred together for all their similarities. A precious few have a place on my bookshelf. 'A Fair Prospect' by Cassandra Grafton is in a class of its own.

From the first page, Ms. Grafton takes the reader on a wonderful adventure - a new and imaginative retelling of the beloved classic tale. The story is beautifully written, full of romance, humor and yes, angst. But the page-turning tension is realistic for the period and the story - created so skillfully and naturally, and not as a result of some wild contrivances of plot. The characters, most importantly Elizabeth and Darcy, remain true to their original counterparts in all aspects, though the tale is wonderfully fresh. The new characters are a welcome addition and add much to the enjoyment of the story, without detracting from the central plot.

Let's be honest, far too many authors eager to take advantage of the popularity of Austen-based literature have slapped the names 'Elizabeth' and 'Darcy' onto a couple of characters, cranked out 200 pages of nonsense and had the nerve to call it a Pride and Prejudice story. That is most assuredly NOT the case with this lovely novel. Fans of Jane Austen will have no cause to repine with Ms. Grafton's exquisite re-imagining of her beloved work. It is far and away one of the most well-written, beautifully romantic and delightfully humorous adaptations I have ever read and will be a favorite on my bookshelf for many years to come. I cannot wait for the next volumes to be released!

HASH(0xa233987c) étoiles sur 5 THE BEST...absolutely! 15 mars 2013
Par J - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Of all the P&P fictions that have been created from the original classic and of all the authors who have ever attempted to capture the essence of Darcy and Elizabeth, Cassandra Grafton is the only one I would recommend WITHOUT RESERVATION, and this is from years of having read just about anything and everything that has been written, inspired by the original. Most were disappointing, a few were wanting, and none have captivated completely. A Fair Prospect does.
Starting from the first proposal scenario to the final denouement, this story had me in its grip, a roller-coaster of emotions at bay, alternating from angst to smiles to exhilaration --what a joy to be totally enthralled by an author's story-telling talent. It does not happen often, so it is cause for celebration when it does.
Take a bow, Ms. Grafton, you have a lifelong fan!

HASH(0xa2339e10) étoiles sur 5 A Compelling and Delightful Diversion 14 mars 2013
Par Teg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Among the plethora of Jane Austen-based fiction available, Cassandra Grafton stands out as one of the better such authors. Her writing style is immediately engaging, and passes that age-old test: when I mentally plan to stop reading at the end of the next chapter, and then as it approaches realize I must read on for "just one more." This story gets right at the heart of the relationship between Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy - pun intended - in all its humorous, misguided, painful and fulfilling ways.

While the plot begins at a Pride and Prejudice book-based point, it departs then into a "what if" that is compelling and delightful. But throughout new adventures and emotions, Ms Grafton adroitly keeps her Austen characters true to their origins and development in canon; even as she introduces wholly original characters that shine despite having to play opposite such well-loved protagonists.

For fans of Jane Austen, this will become a favorite on your bookshelf after you've read it! I am very much looking forward to publication of the remaining books in this series.

Par L. Beutler - Publié sur Amazon.com

What a delightful surprise. Cassandra Grafton has a delicious feel for the Regency rhythms of sentence structure and the dialogue is equally fine. Given the quality of the writing, this has very few distracting typos for a creatspace.com production, I am surprised a traditional publisher hasn't snapped up the series. This is of the what-if type of P & P retelling, with some straying from the canon and introduction of new characters, but it is still Lizzy & Darcy's story. Some of the new characters are mentioned in conversation in volume one but we do not meet them, so the relationships of old to new characters are a bit confusing at the start. We are given ample of Lizzy and Darcy's private thoughts in detail and so far they ring true. In volume one Colonel Fitzwilliam is especially enjoyable. This author has set the bar very high for herself (and the rest of us), and I look forward to volumes two and three.

HASH(0xa2339d5c) étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Writing! 29 avril 2013
Par Sara - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Here's Pride and Prejudice in slow motion. If you enjoy fast-paced action plots, this book is not for you. What it attempts instead, is a detailed study of character, and thought/ feeling development, over a short time span. I enjoyed the writing tremendously and I was never bored with the details. Colonel Fitzwilliam was especially funny and the psychological study quite astute. Starting in the middle of Miss Austen's novel and having the nice space of three volumes to expand, there's ample opportunity to examine nuances of reaction and motivation. I eagerly look forward to the next volume!
